Edit: Gloria.tv says this guilty verdict is bogus? How are they bogus? Wish we’d posted something earlier, but despite a lot of the efforts to defend him in various Neocon publications by dry as dust commentators, the accusations against Pell sounded like they carried a lot of water, and 12 of Pell’s peers seemed to think so as well. A pool member, Les Tyack gave a very credible testimony that he witnessed Pell in the changing room toweling himself off in front of boy. This prompted Tyack to ban then Father George Pell from that pool. Mr. Tyack approached police in 2012. Darren Mooney also witnessed the same behavior. [9:35] Mr. Tyack’s account is at [17:00] But be sure to check out the entire documentary and listen to the men who were abused as children give their side. It’s very compelling.
And let’s not be surprised. We should all know by now, despite Pell’s adoption of a rockribbed conservative appearance, who his real constituency is.
[Gloria] The bogus conviction of Cardinal George Pell on December 11 – en.news reported yesterday - was based on an unanimous verdict of the jury, writes the anti-Church TheDailyBeast.com (December 12).
The Cardinal was found "guilty" of having homosexually abused two Melbourne choir boys in the late '90s when he was Melbourne archbishop although, given the location, it is impossible that such abuses could ever have taken place.
The trial is still under a gag order in Australia that prevented any details of the secret trial being made public.
All along Pell has repeated his vehement and consistent denials of any and all such accusations.
